I've gone out for runs from small island towns on Greek Islands, and while building highway infrastructure is difficult in Greece, I don't see how jogging on a road results in dying in a cave in terms of exposure; Time of day should help establish the likelihood of witnesses, and her potentially seeking shelter from the sun (it gets very, very, hot this time of year,) along with information on the distance from well trafficked roads and nearest town the last known position would have been on, or how far the cave would be from a road. Unless ofcourse she went for a run on a trail, which again is something I've done out there, and it's comparable if not rather rugged compared to some of the higher elevations in SoCal, so getting heat exhaustion, moving towards a cave, and dying of heat stroke, are quite plausible in this scenario.
